The Precious Hand of God

The Precious Hand of God I find on life’s journey at times the road Becomes dark and miry like sinking sand; Pulling me down ‘til I can’t go on; Weakened, afraid, I can no longer stand. But from miry clay the Lord lifts me up ‘Til I’m safe on solid ground And trusting His Hand holding me close; I k...

Willingly Christ Suffered

Willingly Christ Suffered In stillness of soul I sometimes envision Three crosses at Calvary with all its horror. I focus on Jesus, the Man in the middle Dripping with blood in great pain and sorrow. He was sorry for people who would not accept Him, And for a world filled with sin and shame. He gave...
